The built-in HTTPS server provides the console for Symantec Protection Engine. The built-in HTTPS server is independent of any existing HTTPS server that might be installed on your server. It is not a general-purpose Web server. During the installation process, you are prompted for the TCP/IP port number on which this built-in HTTPS server listens. The default setting is port 8004. If you specify a port number other than the default, remember which port number you chose. The port number that you specify must be exclusive to the Symantec Protection Engine console. Use a port number that is equal to or greater than 1024 and that is not already in use by another program or service. Do not use port number 443, which is the default port number for secure Web server connections.
You are also prompted upon installation to assign a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) port number on which encrypted files are transmitted for increased security. (The default port number is 8005.) If you change the port number, use a number that is equal to or greater than 1024. No other program or service should use the port number that you choose.
When you configure your firewall, ensure that you do not block the ports for the built-in HTTPS server and the SSL.
